If I set the router as DMZ (Demilitarized Zone), would that be in any way dangerous for hackers to try to get in the network easily?

How many ports does the router have???

If it has 4 then try to hook them all up by lan cable.

It worked for me. If its only a 2 port and you have to use the dsl modem, then

Yes.

This is how your network should be setup if you wish to Share Files. (By the way, thanks for the diagram :tazz: -- made things alot easier to understand.)

With your current configuration, PC1 will not be able to share files with PC2, PC3 or PC4. PC2 will not be able to share files with PC1, PC3 or PC4. PC3 will be able to share files with PC4, but not PC1 or PC2. PC4 will be able to share files with PC3, but not PC1 or PC2.

As you can see this is the blueprint of my house and the cables are connected outside my room and into another.

The reason why i don't want all the cables to be in the router is because I do not want to have to drill more holes on the wall of the room or make the existing hole larger.

thanks for all your guys help
